Want to Crew?

2023 Bios Of People Who Would Like To Crew

Jake Adkins

Interested in Tuesday (PHRF)  racing.  I have been sailing for 30+ years.  My dad was a yacht broker back before the crash in 1989.  I was part of his boat delivery crew, and it was a good excuse to skip school and hang out with him.  I was Skipper Of The Year in the junior sailing program at GIYC I participated in for 4 years around the same time.  Since becoming an adult, I purchased a ’89 Catalina 25′ (SRWK) to be able to teach my wife and kids how to sail. We did several 7-day cruises in the great lakes, and when they were young pretty much lived on the boat during the weekend (Western Basin Lake Erie).  My wife and I raced our boat for a couple of years on Lake Erie, and also have done 2 bareboat charters in the BVI on 40′ catamarans.   I will be in town for the next 2 years working for Lonza as a consultant Project Manager. Demographic info on me (Age 43, Height 6’1″, 230lbs, non-drinker)  My schedule is 2 weeks here and 2 weeks back home, if this sounds like a good fit contact me.

I am interested in the racing events hosted by Piscataqua Sailing Association. I have sailed a few times each summer over the last 10 years with Mike Hodgens in a J24. I sailed in a Friendship Sloop a few times, and I learned to sail at Community Boating in Boston as a kid! Please consider me as a potential crew member. If possible, I would like to be part of a PHRF team.  Phone:  603-498-6841

I raced with PSA for about 5 years, starting off on J24s and then moved over to the PHRF class. I have also cruised for over 30 years on monuhulls, trimarans and catamarans in the New England area. In the last 7 years I have cruised for months in the Western/Eastern Caribbean, Central America, Portugal,Greece, Alaska and the Bahamas. Raced PHRF 3 years ago and was a substitute for the last two. I have experience in most positions on the boat, and am looking to join a boat and get involved with racing again this summer!  Direct: 603-380-3291     Email: judy.king@beangroup.com
